This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about our review of Gigabyte’s X99-SLI motherboard, a new gaming center that opened up in Pittsburgh, Apple’s new iMacs, new features added to the GeForce Experience and more!
The X99 platform is an expensive platform to go into. The processors are expensive, the quad channel DDR4 is expensive, and the motherboards are expensive as well. With Gigabyte’s second round of X99 motherboards they wanted to bring out a fully-featured board that could get you on the X99 platform at a reasonable cost. This is where the X99-SLI comes in. It is very much like Gigabyte’s X99-UD4, with a few features left out. Probably ones most users won’t even notice. You still have an all digital power design, 3 and 4-way graphics support, dual M.2 slots, SATA Express, Gigabyte’s AMP-UP audio, and much more! If you are looking to get into the X99 platform and want a solid board that is not going to break the bank this could be the board for you. Let’s see what it can do!
Gigabyte has just introduced a new Z170 mini-ITX motherboard in their G1 Gaming line. The motherboard is the Z170N-Gaming 5. The board features a 5-phase VRM and gets power from a combination of a 24-pin ATX power connection and a 8-pin EPS connector.
Gigabyte’s G1 Gaming series motherboards have been some of the company’s most popular over the past few years, especially with the X99 and Z97 chipsets. Skylake and the Z170 chipset are here and that means an entire new line of G1 Gaming motherboards from Gigabyte! The board we are taking a look at today has been on radar ever since it was first revealed at Computex earlier this year. The Z170X-Gaming G1 sits as Gigabyte’s top of the line or flagship gaming motherboard. It has everything that a gamer and an enthusiast would want, and Gigabyte has pulled it off in style too! The board has RGB LED clusters in 3 different places on the board and on the rear I/O shield. Gamers will appreciate the 4-way graphics support, Killer DoubleShot X3 Pro gaming networking, and professional-grade audio. This is just the tip of the iceberg too, let’s jump in and see what the Z170X-Gaming G1 is all about!
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards is proud to announce today its new 100 series motherboards based on the Intel Z170 chipset with support for Intel’s new 6th Gen. Core processor. This updated platform marks a new era for the desktop PC with the continued support of DDR4, introduction of USB 3.1 over the new Type-C connector, as well as an array of onboard features and technologies that lets the user unleash the full power of their PC.
It looks like someone let the cat out of the bag on Gigabyte’s upcoming Gaming 3 motherboard. The chipset is of course under NDA, but if you’ve been following any of our Skylake leaks you can guess what chipset this board features and the official name of the board. The board will follow Gigabyte’s black and red color design that they have been using on their Gaming Series motherboards.
Here are the first photos and our first look at Gigabyte’s upcoming flagship targeted towards overclockers and enthusiasts, the Z170-SOC Force. Gigabyte keeps the same black and orange design that they have been using on their overclocking motherboards. For those wondering this board keeps the traditional ATX form factor.
Gigabyte has just released two new graphics cards that make use of their new super-compact dual-fan WindForce 2X cooling solution. These two cards include the 4GB N960OC-4GD and the 2GB N960OC-2GD, both are of course GeForce GTX 960 models.
This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about an awesome Gigabyte X99 motherboard we recently reviewed, all of AMD’s new graphics cards presented at their event this week, and some pretty cool PC gaming news to come out of E3 2015!
Gigabyte has three very distinct motherboard lines in their X99 lineup and offer quite a lot of motherboards compared to most brands. They have their G1 Gaming Series, Overclocking Series, and Ultra Durable series. While the specific motherboards in each category are targeted at a certain type of user, many of their features cross into each category. For example the G1 Gaming series motherboards overclock quite well. Since the X99 chipset has been out for a little while now we are seeing a second wave of motherboards from manufacturers. The X99-Gaming 5P from Gigabyte is one such motherboard and is the replacement for the soon to be retired X99-Gaming 5. Gigabyte has actually added new features to this motherboard to make it even better. Let’s jump in!
